Chilly the Penguin

Our Sponsor is

The challenge is Layering or Layer It. 

I had created the backgrounds with an older Hero Arts stamp, Chalk Background.  I used white ink on black glossy paper, first and second stage stamping.  I came across the paper when going through papers to select a background for this cute penguin.  I had to think black and white, so sponged the holly branch with Distress ink Black Soot.  My pops of color come from the berries, scarf and little orange tones of feet and beak.  I hope you like this because I really do.  It's different and I like it.  

This card turned out to be a glittery arty card.

Now, the Challenge - Be Thankful or Thank You Cards

I thought a child-like card would be fun, all kinds of distressing on the panel with Deacon, just like someone who is learning to color would do.  Some hearts surely go with this card.

Thankful Dragonflies

The crafting community is so much smaller these days that even though I live in Australia and as such don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I feel I can still celebrate through my crafting friends. So in the spirit of the holiday here is a lovely bright Thank you card.
